Giorgio Silverio's work deals with the apparition of an image and what formit can take and develop into, in the same wayas reading a book produces images. Silverio has responded directly to the context of theClockwork Gallery, where the exhibition consists of two posters, back-to-back,continuously revolving below four clocks and illuminated at night.
La Neige et la Nuit propose a scenario for a nocturnal retrospectiveexhibition in which both recorded and imagined projects are re-presented asslideshows, fireworks and films. These three means of projection arearticulated in different ways within the two opposite and complementarygeographies of the Maldives and Finland.
On the hundreds of islands that make up the Maldives, slideshows take place in underground projection rooms, and in Finland, a countryperforated by thousands of lakes, the fireworks explode in the sky above,reflected in the water's surface. The third means of projection, the films, arescreened on out-door cinemas on boats that circle both the islands in theMaldives, and the shores of the lakes in Finland, throughout the night.
A series of repetitions and differences draws the shape of aplayground, which sets a proximity between water and cinema, overlaying a flowof images with a liquid and ever changing quality.
